2:03 pm
authorities they ask for more control that's what they're doing but what is it about losing it's about controlling the number and they aren't there. once we are inside the enter and go will of the people seems unlimited. people are working here for hours many of them for the last two days. either non-scientists who has been here for over twelve hours even fell unconscious but she still wants to help. that is why she was transferred from moving rubble to helping distribute food and beverage is. she strongly believes that there are still victims who are alive under the rubble. yes i really think so. this is why i'm still here. even though i fainted at least i can help a bit here. to when

2:05 pm
evening. that we are drawing up political corresponded of these hands drawn here standing at the brandenburg gate in the heart of berlin high hunt for the countdown to the german elections has begun to get a sense of data among the people there are getting ready to vote on sunday. yes indeed there was some splinter party that had. some speeches here a little bit earlier and a couple of oddball protesters referring to anglo american as a pig amongst other things and i spoke to about a dozen people here most of them german tourists from other areas of germany all of them said that this was an important election that they were very very interested in what the results would be and most of them in fact had voted already by mail by postal vote because they are here on a trip to berlin and not in their home area but all of them say it that what is crucial about this election is how well badly the smaller parties to both clearly
2:06 pm
indicate an american is headed for a drive a shift for many people in germany the big question is how the far right if this election isn't it yes indeed it will be the first time and this is very likely the a of the the alternative for germany is polling at about ten percent of the vote at the moment it's very very likely that this party will enter parliament for the first time the first time that a party of this nature has been in the german parliament for decades there are other smaller parties involved as well they are the left fogey the far left party simply called the left there is the free democrats liberal market liberal party and they all of course the environmental greens all of these small parties have roughly ten percent of the vote at the moment i was able to speak to. the local member
2:07 pm
of parliament for the green party this isn't what he had to say. so we're talking about a member of parliament for the greens. doing. field. we're still fighting here two more days to go and i'm quite optimistic that we will be the third. and and more than thirty percent of the waters didn't decide to whom they were going towards four so there's a lot of music in the box still and we're fighting for the next forty eight hours and we will run and then. what's most prominent about the selection is that the right wing populist. alternative for germany are very likely to enter parliament how is that going to change parliament and debate and parliament do you
2:08 pm
think i'm running in berlin midday on my own poena it is bad to explain schorsch she is one of the front runners of to i have to say and she never came to one discussion and schools and the marketplace is never so they are not confronting the people they're just visible on the social media but they are poisoning the debate they are scapegoating people living here for decades already the immigrants they are scapegoating there is refugees and they are looking to our back to our history in a totally different way they are. somehow thinking that it was not wrong what happened between thirty three and forty five and these are purely racist and this will definitely change the work of the german one people like gall and they are tricks on shores and pity etc they will influence our debate and devil poison
2:09 pm
our debate even in the bundestag that's why we democrats have to stick together and fight racism fight the ideology and tell everybody was going to vote on sunday go and vote this is very important but because these are anti democrats these are people were fighting against our democrats see that's why we have to come together and go to war and support the democratic party is of course support green and support. thank you very much. so that was john moore local member of parliament of the green party speaking to us earlier. hands from the at the brandenburg gate of course as everyone is saying that the avoid it enough to be critical thank you very much for talking to us. now the u.s. president donald trump has called a north korean leader kim jong un a mad man who's starving and killing his own people that's after kim dubbed him
2:10 pm
a deranged dotard now north korean state media has released this photo of came reading the statement kim was responding to transfix before the u.n. general assembly which he called the most feared roche's declaration of war in history in new york north korea's foreign minister really young whole raise the stakes even further have a listen. i think the strongest ever hydrogen bomb test might be conducted in the pacific ocean. draw in correspondence show there in the film now jason what are we to make of north korea's threat to test a hydrogen bomb over the pacific. listening to what foreign minister rewash is saying it sounds like he was just improvising when speaking with journalist there's no sign right now that kim jong un regime is preparing to test
2:11 pm
a hydrogen bomb out in the pacific it would be logistically challenging of course north korea's previous six tests have all been underground in north korea but doing it out of the pacific would make it much more vulnerable to some sort of preemptive strike an opportunity to shoot it down by the u.s. or maybe even japan so no signs of that is a minute at all and all of korean state media have kicked out at their chinese counterparts accusing them of fighting with the trump administration if the fiction developing between the two allies for china is north korea's largest trading. and north korea and china have always been described as close as lips and teeth ever since china defended north korea during the korean war in the early one nine hundred fifty s. but i think beijing has lost its patients with the kim jong un regime china does not want to see instability on the korean peninsula it is not pleased with kim's
2:12 pm
repeated missile and nuclear tests however you know this news that china is pressing its banks not to do business with north korea would be a sign that beijing is trying to squeeze the kim jong un regime but there is no reason to believe that he would that beijing would squeeze on young so much that it would collapse because at the end of the day china does not want american soldiers and in a south korean administered north korea to be on its border if the element which has crept up on the border was between trump and kim jong un. right well i mean given jungleland certainly took it very personally being called rocket man by donald trump it is getting very personal right now and we have a leader and john young as well as in washington that is not afraid to call names and talk very bellicose rhetoric right jason strother in silica korea thank you
2:13 pm
very much for that. this article look at some other stories making news around the wind iran's president hassan rouhani has pledged to strengthen his country's defense capabilities at a parade in tehran the country unveiled a new myside with a range of two thousand kilometers the move comes despite criticism from the u.s. and from france. in puerto rico people are assessing the damage to their island now that harken maria has moved offshore the u.s. caribbean territory of remains without power after being hit by the storm on wednesday authorities say restoring electricity could take months it was the strongest hurricane to hit puerto rico in eighty years. in mud and out thousands of people have demonstrated against the philippines president already go to testy they demanded an end to extrajudicial killings a spot of his drug war and protested against

2:15 pm
and setting and florent she would really be doing good to find her own voice and to find a vision for britain where does she see the future of britain in the in relationship with the e.u. somebody has said in the daily telegraph one of the conservative papers actually upon with her no deal is better than a dead bad deal in saying no speech is better than a fudge speech so really a lot of expectations she needs to map out does she want to see the future of the britain close to the e.u. for example in the model like switzerland or further away maybe something like canada more a trade deal but also making some concrete office this is really also what brussels expecting breaking the deadlock over things like money e.u. citizens rights and the irish border and bob you of course in your fish of the list thinking earthly to that address what is it that they want from the u.k. . some realism finally from britain because the
2:16 pm
problem is that patients here is wearing thin we know that these rounds of talks have been have been going on for some months now with absolutely no result now what the european union wants is some concrete proposals some proposals. on the table and they want the end of blue skies thinking and have cake and eat it and this is going to be glorious rhetoric that is this can't go on like it did to resume a really has to sort of jump the hurdle today in order to convince the officials and the heads of state and government of the other twenty seven and begin one of the most hotly contested issues is a financial settlement which is supposed to be addressed in this speech what can we expect there from to resume well the figure of twenty billion euros as something that the u.k.
2:17 pm
is willing to pay to the it was mentioned however we don't know what this money is going to be for these old liabilities always does for future market access plus it's something that obviously we have to see whether this is really the case and we know that the e.u. expects actually more from the u.k. the figures of sixty almost one hundred billion euros were mentioned so there is widely different expectations some people here in the u.k. think well there is not going to be it's not going to be necessary to pay anything at all so this is really something well the closely looking at and behavior and offer of twenty billion euros would that be a figure that the e.u. can live with and break the deadlock in negotiations. we have to be careful here on return as they would already mentioned not to confuse old obligations old money and you money if this is for continuous market access after breakfast that is after march two thousand and nineteen for two years for instance it would just be the
2:18 pm
money that britain needs to pay into the pot if it wants to continue was an exit to the internal market however if that of course might be part of the payment of the total sum of around sixty billion then it is a talking point but it could just be a start for negotiations however one thing has to be clear is britain once a transition period on the same terms as it has now is a member of the european union more or less then it has to pay its dues there is just simply no discussion about that so this still seem to be quite far apart bobber of resilin brussels and bigot march in london thank you both very much for your perspectives. and of course we'll be following terry's m a speech live and bring it to you on the she's expected to talk in about forty five minutes from now coming up ahead on the news it's been two years since vine blasted verbs work behind a run of five goals by robert levin dots in nine minutes

story is not quite over just yet thank you so much for this. france's president a monolith marco has signed a series of contested law or labor reforms into law tens of thousands of people took to the streets on thursday to protest those changes the measures make it easier to hire and fire workers and allow small companies to be goetia to directly with stuff rather than through trade unions hopes the reforms will help reduce france's unemployment rate which is currently at almost ten percent. now of course the french economy is a heavyweight in the e.u. so does brussels support mccall's labor market reforms max hall from and gives us the view from brussels where common knowledge is that france needs to do this because the economy has been slacking almost for decades unemployment is almost double what it is for example in germany and many experts blame that on the lack of
2:23 pm
labor flexibility it's too expensive for companies to fire people to get rid of them and if they try to do so that it's very expensive but if you look at other numbers the pictures of it is a little different for example productivity is higher than it is in the united states that means that when the french do work they work well so it's a mixed bag and it's hard to tell but like i said common knowledge is this is this is. like carry a loaf tons of is poised to snatch up the largest chunk of bankrupt abil in that is according to local media reports citing insiders sources is reported to be considering a takeover of the bankrupt allen subsidiary nikky as part of the bridge to cough up the company the reports say easyjet and condo split to add billions remaining assets the airline now says though negotiations will continue until october the twelfth. and up as the latest i phone hits the shelves today the i phone ad boasts
